Quality Christian holidays in beautiful and exciting locations around the world. Relax and enjoy from the moment you arrive.

When God speaks to Moses in Exodus 33:14, He reminds us, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest”. What a joy it is that our Heavenly Father loves to be with us in relationship and in rest!

This message is at the heart of each Richmond holiday; we offer you space to relax, explore your faith and invest in friendships. In these incredible locations and at our UK office, our Christian staff teams always start the day with prayer and Bible study, putting God first and seeking His wisdom and blessing for the adventures that lie ahead.

If you’re ready for adventure or seeking rest, we hope to see you in one of our resorts soon!

Just returned from a Richmond ski holiday at Chalet des Neiges in Reberty. I can't praise it highly enough. The Chalet is in a good position on the slopes. The staff were excellent. The evening games were enjoyed by both participants and spectators.

Just had the best holiday in Reberty, The chalet is so well positioned to ski in/out, the lounge with fabulous views and tea/coffee when you don't want to ski all day. The staff being helpful, making everything effortless, even heating your ski boots when they are hard to get on!! Long may Richmond operate in the three valleys 😊

We were the first guests of 2023/24 and the Richmond team at Chalet des Neiges have been absolutely brilliant. All staff led by David and Phi were professional but also relaxed and super friendly. Food from cooked breakfasts to fuel up for the day, afternoon tea, canopies and dinners has been brilliant thanks to Phoebe and Nat in the kitchen. The evening entertainment was a hilarious way to end the day.Great relaxed atmosphere in the lovely chalet all week. Thanks to the whole staff team for making it such a great week and even organising fresh snow and sun for the last day. Have a great season.

We have now been on 7 Richmond holidays and will continue to go on many more. Their attention to detail is always excellent and they go the extra mile to ensure that everyone has a fantastic holiday.The food is always fabulous and there are a range of excursions available for all interests and abilities.The ministry time is optional but is a perfect way to the end the day and the fellowship with other Christians is wonderful - we have always made new friends to stay in touch with afterwards.Richmond holidays are ideal for couples, families, older people and single people because everything is taken care of and you feel safe and cared for throughout.I can't recommend them more highly.

We loved our holiday in Samos earlier this year so much we’re coming back in September! The whole Richmond team were so lovely and the other guests were very friendly. 10/10 would recommend going out with James from the waterfront team on a joy ride on a Cat! The excursions were fun and there were so many of them. Bethany and Bekky in the office were so helpful when we booked our second holiday with Richmond.

Utterly brilliant! I knew the trip would be good from what i’d heard, but hadn’t anticipated how significant the experience would be. Going on my own meant being slightly out of comfort zone, but so was everyone else and that made for a really strong & inclusive community vibe. Richmond staff were on point, hotel was decent, activities were great fun and pool/sea/sun combo never fails. Would recommend to anyone who’s on their own (or part of a family) and wants to have a lovely time, make friends and come back renewed. Keep up the excellent work! 🙌

Loved my holiday with Richmond. Would highly recommend it for someone who was travelling alone, as I was. I felt included and everyone was very friendly, both staff and other travellers. Was a full and packed week with loads of great water activities and quieter creative tutorials and sessions. Met some great people!

I just spent two weeks with Richmond Holidays in Samos. And of course, loved all the sun and warmth of the people and the weather. Even if don't know anyone going the weeks you are there, you will make new friends quickly. I saw about nine people I'd met on previous Richmond Holidays in Samos. I keep telling my friends about it too! Maybe one day they will go with me.

We have just been as a family of four (2 adults and 2 small children) to Richmond's ski chalet. We have had a fantastic time! The chalet's location is incredible, you couldn't be any closer to the slopes. The staff were lovely and always helpful - not to mention super fun with the kids, going along with their games, providing extra entertainment and making us all feel very welcomed. To top it all up, the ministry sessions were insightful and make a great holiday even better!

We had an amazing skiing holiday with Richmond at Les Menuires. The team who looked after us were excellent - fantastic food, the hot tubs and saunas were ideal after a day skiing and nothing was too much trouble. I can’t rate them highly enough.

A wonderful week - well done to Dan Lexi Susie, Susannah, Noah and the other lovely person whose name escapes me for all your hard work in the chalet in Les Menuires Reberty 3 Vallées! And to all the great team in the office back in the UK - a wonderful holiday - lovely food, lovely people, great fun esp the hot tubs, and the presence of Jesus permeating the place. Well done for pastor Greg for leading us for the week. Thank you, may I come again please 🙂

Fantastic holiday! My first time with Richmond and they were simply fantastic. Attentive, professional, skilled, friendly, personable and very well organised.All activities were well organised, and I felt very safe at all times.Met some amazing people.The Christian input was brilliant with freedom to join in, and no pressure if not. This holiday would suit anyone, whether they are Chritian or not. It is ideal for people who are on their own to be able to have a safe and enjoyable holiday adventure, with other friendly people.

An absolutely wonderful holiday! I’m trying to work out why… I think it’s a combination of the ease of getting out in the water (the staff get the boats / windsurfs ready and you literally just sail off without any hassle!) combined with a lovely pool / sun lounger area; really good company (getting to know other guests and being able to share and talk at a deeper level) and a great choice of other activities (go karting; outdoor cinema) And then on top of that having spiritual ministry times - I feel my body mind and soul have been fully refreshed!The staff team have been exceptionally friendly and welcoming - they went out of their way to ensure our holiday was as good as possible..I joined others going on early morning cycle rides (best time to do activity in August in Greece - too hot otherwise unless in the water!) and I felt quite virtuous arriving back for breakfast having done some fitness…And on top of all that our 19 yr old has bonded with some other youth and is v keen that we come back next year..We will be back - thank you Richmond for a great week!

I had a fantastic holiday with friendly staff at a fantastic hotel. I learnt to sail and will definitely be returning. It was a perfect holiday for me since I was a sole traveller but met plenty of people there and had great chances to enjoy a range of water-sports. I would highly recommend. 😁 ⛵️
20:32 28 Jul 22
INCREDIBLE! I visited Samos and had the best 2 weeks. The Richmond staff are AMAZING! They were always smiling, always happy to help. Super patient and kind. They really want to give you the best experience ever. From beginning with the booking of the holiday to the end of the experience Richmond Holidays deserve far more than 5 stars.

My first holiday since the loss of my wife. I was quite apprehensive but I needn't have been. I stayed for 2 weeks and it was wonderful. As many or as few activities as you like but with no pressure.This was truly a Christian holiday: kindness and a loving spirit were very evident.Finally, I must mention the young Richmond staff: absolutely outstanding in every way

We’ve just finished a wonderful week in Samos. Richmond has a great team looking after you while you are there. We loved the sailing, cycling, windsurfing, kayaking and paddle boarding but a particular highlight is sailing on the catamaran across the fabulous waters off Samos. The hotel is so friendly and we enjoyed the buffet style food. A lovely group of guests and staff meant great dinner conversations with lots of laughter. Can’t wait to go back!!

What a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing place. The Zephiros is smart and clean and calm, staff are very helpful. The best thing is the wonderful Richmond Team led by Lizzie - they are an energised, spirit filled team, who bring loving kindness to all engagements with them. Whether on the waterfront, out cycling or on excursions - it is a blessing to spend time in their company - thank you all.

Richmond Holidays are able to do more than you dare ask or imagine. The love demonstrated from the moment we met the team was overwhelming and permeated the entire holiday. Their youthful energy and desire to bless us was an unexpected joy . This was the best holiday we have ever had. Activities, rest, fellowship and Jesus' presence in the most idyllic sun drenched setting- what more could we ask for?

Our first visit to Samos with Richmond was excellent. The resort team that Richmond have assembled is amazing, every one incredibly helpful, skilful, cheerful and friendly. Opportunities for water sports, cycling, walking and exploring are more than can be exploited even in two weeks and the underpinning Christian ethic and ministry help to create a wonderful and easy ambience and fellowship which enables guests to meet and bond quickly and seamlessly. Very highly recommended.

It has been the longest wait for this holiday, with everything over the last few years, but it has been so worth it! I can’t think of a box it has not ticked for me.There are so many activities on offer that I had to book two weeks to be able to do everything I wanted to do; sailing, stand up paddle boarding, bike rides, go karting, village visits, Captains BBQ, farm/culinary experience in the mountains (so special) and saying I saw the new top gun in a Greek open air cinema just adds to it. All of this and there was still time to relax by the pool and beach! With the amazing fellowship with guests and staff over the two weeks I am back at work with a spring in my step and working out if I can make my next visit in two months time rather than two years! Thankyou Richmond!

This company provide a rest. I mean a real rest. A rest for the soul. A rest for the body - in the hot tub. Not for me though as it's ski, ski, ski! Followed by a sauna and a first class 3 course meal. When can I go next?

Outstanding holiday experience; friendly, relaxed and fun staff on hand to make the time what you need it to be. Something for everyone and I thoroughly enjoyed myself as a solo traveller - made friends with lots of guests in an atmosphere of safety and joy, and enjoyed every activity on offer, including the ministry opportunities. Next time I’ll be booking for longer!

This holiday was both restful and exciting. The times of reflection are relaxing, as was the delightful setting. The sailing can be very exciting when the wind is up and the catamarans are out. It seems that every week i go there is new community forms amongst the guests and often i find that i stay in touch even when the holiday is over. Returning guests seem to be a feature of Richmond holidays. The hotel staff are very welcoming and the Richmond staff never fail to go above and beyond to ensure that the holiday is enjoyable.

I absolutely LOVED the week I spent with Richmond. I couldn't fault it. And, I would 100% return EXCEPT SADLY for the price. I simply cannot justify to myself spending TWICE what I would spend on a package holiday (especially given the quite basic rooms provided). The fellowship, team and activities were genuinely excellent but not worth double the price of a holiday. I would usually budget around £600, but this holiday including flight, for a basic room, was almost double at £1,100 (there were also extra charges for day trips on top). Fantastic but too pricey.

Great holiday with Richmond in Samos - a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Apart from sleeping in the sun and swimming in the crystal clear sea, I went sailing, kayaking, early morning paddle boarding and out on a jeep trip to explore the island - green, mountainous, waterfalls, monasteries and village tavernas.The Richmond staff are amazing - friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. They made the whole holiday so straightforward - despite the extra testing, form filling etc.My favourite moments? The open air cinema in a beautiful walled garden one evening, the Sunday service on the terrace overlooking sea and mountains -and the great company.Highly recommended!!!

A unique formula! In no particular order, the main ingredients are:water sports, cycling, chilling, guaranteed sunshine ☀️, friendship, worship, fantastic /able youngsters, great outings. Oh! And fab cocktails on the terrace! A great holiday. Have been going for over 10 years and still haven’t done all I want to do, booked to return next year.

Had a brilliant time on a Richmond Holiday this year. Loved getting involved with all the water sports and that you could use a bike at any time. All the staff were incredible, really helpful and super encouraging. Loved the personal touches of being contacted before the holiday and that seemingly everyone knew our names when we were there too. Brilliant to be in a relaxing place with other Christians and felt super well looked after. Highly recommend.
18:58 01 Sep 21
What an incredible time. Such a friendly and relaxing time! A lovely group of people. You can come on your own and find community or come with someone else and do your own thing. A huge range of water sports to do and great optional excursion day out to really experience more of the local culture and experiences. An incredibly trustworthy holiday company who make sure you’re sorted from transport from the hotel to every detail along the way.

I’m not being too bold to say that this Richmond holiday to Samos 2021 has been the best holiday of my life. I had never been on holiday with Richmond before. I was booked for 2 weeks at the beginning of July. Once I got there I loved it so much that I extended my holiday, and then extended it again. I have just finished a 5 week holiday! With the global travel uncertainty with covid I was unsure how this would impact the holiday. But leading up to the holiday and for all the time I was there the staff (both office and resort) were so helpful and reassuring. They went above and beyond to assist with any admin. Not only are they helpful but a joy to communicate with. I was also confident whilst in Samos as all activities were covid safe.The staff team live out Gods love, joy, heart for adventure and service so beautifully. I felt I really got to know team and guests really well. I was travelling alone but made so many good friends. I found it really easy to mix with others even though I was travelling alone, the staff and guests are so inclusive. Eating together has also been a joy: whether just getting to know people, meaningful or spiritual conversations, or laughing so hard you can’t breathe.The fellowship of being around other Christians (both team and guests) has been precious.The encouragement, the ministry and the prayer times have been really spiritually enriching and restorative. It’s been a joy to see and share in what God is doing here in this place and with these people over my holiday. A few ministry highlights were sharing communion, testimonies, worship on the terrace, and spontaneous prayer moments including on paddle boards at sunrise. When you speak with someone and they say those precious words ‘can I pray with you?’, that is so great.Where can I even start with the activities? They have been so fun. I came with a notion that I wanted to learn a new skill - probably sailing. If I’m honest I was a little afraid of deep water, but one week in and I was already enjoying getting out in a single handed dingy. The instruction from the team and the confident assurance that I had in safety on the water with the competent team around (always ready for rescue) made it easy for me to dare to learn and I did. I did level 1 and 2 sailing, start windsurfing in lessons and had plenty of time to practice outside lesson time: the weekly regatta really is something to be remembered! You’ll have to come to discover it! The team have maintained energy, enthusiasm and grace throughout my (long) holiday, from the first day water front with a hilarious obstacle course to them running with the taxi to wave goodbye.Other highlights were group cycle rides to beautiful bays, mountain bikes to a sea jump spot, being taught how to race dive by one of the young people and pebble painting on the terrace with kids and adults. For those preferring a more retreat or physically resting holiday there is all the choice and variety of activity or no activity to make the holiday what you want: trips to beautiful bays, leisurely lunches and mountain villages.I travelled alone but together on this holiday it feels like family. I have a lot of amazing memories from my time Samos, I am already planning my next trip. I could not recommend Richmond Holidays more strongly!

What a brilliant holiday. It was the perfect combination of family fun, activities and refreshment. The team are brilliant really go the extra mile.

Over the years we've had many skiing holidays with Richmond and if we weren't satisfied we wouldn't keep going back. We booked a skiing trip for 10 of us over Christmas 2020 which had to be cancelled due to covid and we received our deposit back without asking. With all our dealings with the company we have been very impressed with their Christian ethos. The accommodation isn't luxurious but it's homely and comfortable, the food has always been good, and service is always with a smile. We will be booking again.

Fantastic holiday all round in terms of fellowship, fun and also improving skills.

We also loved playing in the pool, aqua aerobics, delicious bar food, evening entertainment, the feeling of safety in the hotel, and the area as a whole. Plus - the sea!

It was a time where I could really have rest and share in fellowship with others. It was a beautiful place and I met so many people that I built deep friendships with. The Richmond staff took time to deeply look after each individual and it was the highlight of my year!

Ella, July 2023, Samos

Where do I start?! We loved the community; the staff; the worship and services; the watersports; the regatta; the activities and excursions; the amazing location; the air conditioning after a hot day on the water; relaxing by the pool; evening visits to Pyth; Go Karting... I could go on!
An amazing and relaxing holiday that the whole family enjoyed.

Louise, July 2023, Samos

There was a clear and very well considered ministry theme to the week. Beautiful worship under the stars on Sunday night! It was great having a designated Worship Rep too.

Sarah, July 2023, Samos

I was really grateful to the ministry leaders on the trip. Both checked in with me regularly in a light hearted, down to earth way. They were a lot of fun and very approachable.

Amy, July 2023, Samos

I was particularly struck by the strong values of encouragement and 'have a go' from the staff team. They were supportive and very patient in facilitating on both the waterfront and on dry land. This felt like the quality that sets Richmond apart and made us all family, no matter what our age. What amazing young people you are developing and growing in their life skills and faith!

Lois, June 2023, Samos

Really loved the atmosphere and care from the team. Extraordinary. This was unexpected but absolutely made the holiday for me. In particular I loved the worship times, expertly led by Charlotte.

Kim, June 2023, Samos

The waterfront team were extremely friendly and encouraging to everyone whatever level they were at. I had not expected to be able to sail but was really pleased to be taken out on a "joy ride". I felt well looked after and very safe on board!

Judy, June 2023, Samos

There was a great variety of activities and the staff maintained a high level of expertise and enthusiasm in all they did. They were also flexible when they needed to be and always encouraging. The variety of activities from 'water front' to 'water colours' (Art Week) was excellent.

Mark, July 2023, Samos

I particularly enjoyed fellowship with other Christians and all the staff were excellent!

Judith, June 2023, Samos

I really enjoyed being out in God's breathtaking creation alongside other people who know and love Jesus. It really does feel like being with an extended family.

Frances, December 2022, Chalet des Neiges

We love the situation of the Chalet des Neiges, with its ski-in ski-out facility. We love the Christian ethos and daily morning devotions and evening worship sessions. The chalet staff were super friendly and always smiling

Hilary, January 2023, Chalet des Neiges

We loved the quality of the skiing; the company; the good food; the evening worship; the hot tubs and sauna; the games sessions... just loved all of it!

Liz, February 2023, Chalet des Neiges

Exceptional Richmond Team in resort, as always - nothing is too much travel and they are always cheerful! The location of Chalet des Neige is absolutely perfect. The Christian emphasis, hospitality and general Richmond service is second to none. This must’ve been my 8th ski week with Richmond and it’s always a wonderful time.

Helen, March 2023, Chalet des Neiges

What a blessed experience from the moment I first spoke with the office team on the phone. Never having holidayed 'solo' before, I was determined I wasn't going to miss another year's skiing. Superb. In totality.

Maggie, March 2023, Chalet des Neiges

I really enjoyed the ministry and felt it definitely enhanced the whole experience. For me it was at a very appropriate level and very sensitively delivered.

Penny, March 2023, Chalet des Neiges

It's hard to know where to begin! The staff were all brilliant, the beautiful, unspoiled location of the hotel, with crystal clear water and gorgeous pool, the mix of activities that were different and perfect for each member of the family, fantastic youth leaders, Christian fellowship, new friendships made... it was all pretty perfect!

Eleanor, August 2022, Samos

I loved the sailing lessons. I thought it was fantastic having such availability on the waterfront and a small group to learn to sail with. Plus the Richmond staff were utterly brilliant! Always friendly and willing to go the extra mile.

Hannah, July 2022, Samos

The fellowship and friendship with other guests was amazing. Throughout the whole trip I never felt lonely or on my own despite not knowing anyone before I arrived.

Taya, July 2022, Samos

I had a wonderful time making new friends and feeling so well looked after and cared for by both the staff and the other holidayers

Dorothy, July 2022, Samos

Loved the place and the people and the Richmond staff - they were all extremely kind, helpful, friendly and lots of fun! Loved the bikes and being able to go off exploring for the day too.

Alison, June 2022, Samos

My highlights were the prayer meeting lit by fairy lights and a swim under the stars! I learned a few new songs during worship too- thank you.

Annette, June 2022, Samos

As a single person, I enjoyed the non-intense companionship that the holiday allows and the good balance that is possible between structured activity and free time, as well as just enjoying the sun and the sea!

Charles, September 2022, Samos

I loved the place, the people, the Richmond team and the Christian atmosphere. Thank you!

Lisa, September 2022, Samos

I went in need of a real holiday. This was more than a holiday. It was refreshing, inspiring and relaxing... The whole team were amazing! My children very much enjoyed the children's and youth work. They went out in kayaks and on paddle boards with the children's/youth team and spent hours in the swimming pool. We all made new friends. It really couldn't have been better.

Kate, August 2022, Samos

The staff, both Richmond and of the hotel, were very welcoming and friendly. I came on my own but never felt alone and can recommend the holiday to other solo travellers!

Jenny, September 2022, Samos

The worship times were wonderful. The ministry was inspiring and refreshing. It was water to a thirsty soul!

Kate, August 2022, Samos

It was a very pleasant atmosphere in the chalet especially when we were all together at meal times. The facilities and position on the slopes were fantastic and the snow and weather were the icing on the cake.

Gary, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

To be honest this was our best skiing holiday ever. I couldn’t find fault with anything!

Gary, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

Fantastic holiday. Great fellowship, friendship, ministry, skiing, food and hospitality. A real credit to the team at Richmond

Tony, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

The ministry sessions in the evening were excellent - my teenage daughters were keen to attend and found them very accessible and helpful. I loved the week and discovered I loved skiing. I can't wait to come back!

Fiona, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

I love coming on holiday with Richmond. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff are always so friendly and on hand to help with any issues.

Naomi, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

Proximity to the slopes and skiing was amazing. Good food and great to have tea and coffee available all day. Very good childcare - the kids felt very at home and relaxed in the wonderful atmosphere.

Cordelia, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

The scenery was stunning, Fellowship was wonderful and the chalet felt very homely. Food was great and plentiful. We had a wonderful time helped by a very dedicated and delightful Richmond team.

Robert, August 18, French Alps

This is the most amazing holiday we have had. We can’t thank you enough. The team were fantastic and bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. The Christian atmosphere and teaching was fantastic. We will definitely be booking with Richmond again!

Philip, January 19, Chalet Elise

The staff at Chalet Elise were a real team - they were efficient, united, friendly, supportive of each other as well as the guests, and genuinely caring, with a big dose of fun and joie de vivre. Our feeling was that this was a "golden" team, and a beautiful demonstration of what a little piece of the kingdom could be like.

Susannah, December 18, Chalet Elise

The whole team were brilliant and they were very competently led by Lydia. They all had great characters, and I think I have to say they were one of the best teams I have experienced. There was just something special about them as a team that I can't quantify in words.
